sentiments as president obama. if americans could have been a fly on the wall, they could have seen what happened. it there is a great interest in solving these problems and i think that that is a good thing. as senator sessions point -- point out to us, i have done a lot of negotiating in the first thing i learned is a pretty good start any negotiation and spending a lot of time on the front end of negotiation to figure out what you agree on. we have had that mentioned around the table quite a bit and i think most of us agree on but it's not just the government. and so there is one thing that we all agree on, we share the same goal. and i certainly want to have the opportunity, every american have the opportunity to build a good life for their family. i think everyone here deserved that goal and i am the first to admit that we have wide disparity on achieving that goal and there is reasons for these discussions to try to deal and grapple with these enormous consequences. it's not helpful and it won't solve the problem. and the other thing that my business background brings to the table
that seriously. but many argue the criticism is warranted. i'm end pain and reporting. >>anny: president obama may have promised americans they can keep their insurance if they like it but obamacare is now switching up insurance in at least three states. virginia, kentucky and idaho have told insurance companies to scrap plans that don't meet minimum coverage requirements laid out in the affordable care act. virginia, kentucky and idaho say it's just easier to start fresh. some customers with old plans may pay more for new ones; others may get subsidies. about half of kentucky's private insurance market will have their current insurance plans discontinued by the end of next year. family and friends gathered together to remeber 13 year old andy lopez. old andy lopez. to those who've worried... old andy lopez. suffered in silence... hoped... and lived in a state of fear... welcome to a new state... of health. welcome to covered california. the place to find quality, affordable coverage. financial help for those in need. and nobody can be denied because of a pre-existing condition. enroll now at
. >> my contention is that the obama administration is encouraging parasites to come out and, you know, take as much as they can with no remorse. >> now, we can debate economic policy. we can debate how you aid those low income americans. but the disdain, the almost demonizing and denigrating of people because of the economic status, that to me is inexcusable, e.j. >> i think so too. they're acting as if all these folks have mansions right next door to donald trump on public benefits. they act as if all these folks don't want to work. one of the insidious things in the house bill is that they say they have a work requirement. but that's not a real work requirement, because states can cut people even if they're unemployed, even if they're looking for work, even if they can't find jobs that they want to take. and the state is under no obligation to help them. that's not a work requirement. that's just punishing people because the unemployment rate is high. and so it's crazy to talk this way about our fellow citizens and i agree with you. i think it's wrong. >> congresswoman, but there is
launch is just the tip of the iceberg. unless we act, americans will be stuck on board this titanic. this is why republicans are going to keep fighting to protect consumers from the consequences of the health care law. >> we also learned something pretty stunning. the obama administration knew all along that as many as 93 million americans may be unable to keep their health plans under obamacare and notwithstanding the president's repeated, chronic promises that everyone who liked their plan a -- could keep them. remember that? now here is ellen ratner and fox news contributor. and the white house political director of the matt, i have right here, this is the federal register dated june 17th, 2010. in it the administration, that is the treasury labor health will project $93 million americans they project will lose their health plan. that is the break down. this includes both employer plans and individual policies that would be lost. yet the president repeatedly stood before the american people and he promised no one, absolutely no one would ever lose their plan, period. is that a pr

with dallas volunteers helping americans sign up for the program. obama care and online exchanges are playing a big role in tomorrow's gubernatorial race in virginia. you can bet we'll be talking about obama care in next year's midterms and 2016 presidential race and maybe even in 2028 when we're doing the show from outer pace. from that we start with perry bac bacon, who will be with us when we're doing the show from outer space. i got a nice e-mail breaking down how chris christie doing so very well with blacks in new jersey, suggests how he may do in 2016 nationally, we're talking about his getting 30% among blacks in new jersey. this is supposed to be a great number for the gop, but it is largely blacks -- because of decades of problem. ari will dig into that. i want to dig into how latinos will fare and how they'll fare with white voters. they've been doing really badly with latinos for several years now and partly the immigration thing will chase more away further. but with white folks, they've been doing extremely well. when he have a white candidate, like, say, hillary, it will be dif

're against big government. why should obama be spared the attack because he wants americans to be healthy and strong and productive? we have to be consistent and you guys and ladies have been. what i don't understand is that people aren't born as republican and democrats and there has to be somebody, regardless of party label, that has suffered the embarrassment and pain of being denied an insurance policy because they've been sick before. the people who actually need health care the most are too high of a risk, but some of the insurance companies. and this body, republican and democrats allow things like this to happen. when i was a kid, if my mother took three of us, three children to see a doctor, and we weren't sick, they would think she was crazy. because you couldn't afford a doctor. now health care will provide you getting the type of treatment to avoid you being sick and having to lose your dignity and in a personal emergency that provide the most expensive health care that we have. but republicans who have always been admired for being fiscal conservatives have certainly seen the

.gov and americans losing their cheaper insurance plans despite president obama's thomas' approval ratings have hit an all-time low. 42% approve of his work. 51% disapprove and this is the first time in this paul more americans disapprove than approve. 22% said they had a positive view of the g.o.p., only 37% favor democrats. the democrats continue to defend obamacare and says he was not lying when he promised americans could keep their insurance if they liked it. president obama: anybody peddling the notion insurance is canceling the plan without mentioning all the insurers are encouraging people to join better plans with the same carrier and stronger benefits and stronger protections while others get better plans of new carriers through the marketplace, and that many will get new help to pay for the better plan and make them cheaper. if you leave that stuff out, you're being grossly misleading to say the least. rich: through analysis, the administration has knowledge to the health care law would lead the cancellation of these bare-bones cheaper plans despite the presidential promise. while some d

in the last couple of years when it comes to the rights of gay americans. we saw president obama not too long before the election last year change his personal view on gay marriage on same-sex marriage. he'd been in favor of civil unions as he came into office and he personally decided to support same sex marriage. we've also seen recently the repeal of don't ask don't tell. and with the obama administration stopping its enforcement of that federal same-sex marriage ban once the supreme court this year overruled that ban, we're now seeing same-sex couples a lot of them get married so that they can enjoy the federal benefits that traditional couples receive, as well. >> i know that apple ceo tim cook is also weighing in on this, he's pushing the senate to vote for the legislation. but do you think it will? >> reporter: actually the expectation, and let me just tell you this, we just got notice from dean heller, a senator from nevada, a republican, who is saying that he will support it and that actually gives this measure 60 votes. so it is appearing that it is increasingly likely that this wil

issue with the obama care rollout has been many americans feel like a promise was broken, that they could keep their health insurance if they liked it and yet learned later they couldn't at all. they're getting cancellation notices. we're joined by ordinary working people who have been shocked to find obama care means they cannot keep their plans and, in fact, will be paying a lot more money for their health insurance. should the president's speech just now make them feel better about the situation? with me healthier goldwater and debora, a real estate agent in california, who joined us monday, but we wanted to know your reaction to the speech. i'll kick it off with you. >> yeah. unfortunately, the president did not stay one single thing just now that makes me feel any more confident that i am going to be able to afford the plan or that the plan is going to be any better. i really wish that he would stop repeating the same thing, which is, the that 19 million of us, approximately, have are inferior plans, substandard plans. please explain to me how my plan is a substandar
is better, then he is going to tax you. if the american people knew what was behind obama care they would have voted against this president but he was allowed to have the roll out happen. >> it remains to be seen if he is going to hope democrats in the midterm elections as well. you have promised to hold up the nomination of janet yellen as federal chair. >> it passed with all of the republicans of the house and 100 tomorrows. overwhelming bipartisan support. i think the american people want oversight of the federal reserve and it has been held hostage by harry reid now. i'm saying, i'll let you vote when you let the american people vote on transparency and auditting the fed. what are they keeping secret? >> well, quite a bit. all of monetary policy and all of quantitative easing. trillions of dollars changing hands. are people profiting from this? there is a revolving door from big money to the u.s. treasury back onto wall street back into the federal reserve and when they come out of government service one made over $100 million his first year out of government. you have to wonder does
south, if obama care truly self-destructs, i don't know that it's certain, but i would say right now it is more than likely. i think it will set back american liberalism p for a decade at least. the reason is this. obama care is not just any piece of legislation. it's not like immigration. not like a tax hike. obama care is the core of the new expansion of the liberal idea. this is sort of the continuation of the new deal. the continuation of a great society. in a sense the way liberals portrayed it, it is the completion of the entitlement state. the one element that separated us from the rest of the advanced industrial countries saying we were the only one with people who were not covered. now we're going to enter into the realm of those who insure and protect everybody. if this collapses, this huge expansion of the entitlement state, this essential nationalization of one sixth of the u.s. economy, i think that discredits the entire enterprise of the expansion of government which is at the heart of obamaism. that's why liberals are running zar escared. not just one election. it's th

is taking aim at some consider president obama's broken campaign promise that americans who like their health insurance can keep it. >> whether you like the model of obamacare or not the fact that the president sold it on basis that was not true, has undermined the foundation of his second term. i think it is rotting it away. jon: talk about it with bob cusack, the managing editor of "the hill." it is interesting to watch the spin in washington. president obama could not have been more clear, bob, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. if you like your doctor, you can keep him. said that over and over and over again. >> yeah. that's right. i mean, remember a the time the democrats, it was tough getting the votes. so they had to make a lot of promises. this one was clearly broken the way the president said it. 3.5 million people have now lost their plans. obviously some will get new plans but some of them, we've seen anecdotes they liked their plan even though it was not a cadillac plan and were not playing -- paying a lot per month. we don't know the what enrollment
and bob beckle and this is "the five." the obama care rollout continues to disappoint at every turn. something peggy noonan spoke about yesterday. >> there's nothing to say about obama care except from the moment the site debuted straight through to the point that the american people day by day started learning how obama care was changing their lives and canceling their coverage and changing it, it has just been a
found disturbing. to get back to the main point, it's a lot of information that's meant to give american policy makers starting with president obama a decision advantage. what way are they leaning, what are they thinking, what turmoil is going on inside their government. we call that an intelligence business. there's a deal with five countries that they don't spy on each other. if germany and france -- let's stop on france for a moment. the deal with great britain was forged in the bombings of world war ii where we fought together. the germans can't say that. so if they want in on a deal like that, it's a two-way street. they have to show they've stopped all espionage in the deal. when france tried that, it didn't happen. >> are you saying other governments would do it if they had the means to do it? >> i'm saying the government does do it. >> in terms of the united states? >> in terms of what they can do. actually getting these platforms and gathering this information requires a lot of work, takes a lot of risk. in these case as what the u.s. is being accused of here, they to do it. bra
upon them. you take that out to the secular political realm and it's we americans, we don't even have to be in the majority. it's just we who don't like barack obama who want our guns who don't want obama care, we're the real americans. so it's not as if we have a culturally politically diverse country going on. and we go back and forth in between who wins and loses in policy fights, it's about what ask the real america. i think it has tremendously deep religious roots as well. >> i didn't start out the way i am politically. i moved from right to left. and i began even in college or younger i thought we do need social security. everybody can't end up on welfare because they didn't have enough real savings out of their work. you need a program to get people to save. and you need medicare for people who don't have health. nobody could pay the health care costs these days on their own. and you need civil rights. you can't wait for the southern states to agree 3/4 of the states. there had to be measures to move society ahead. that's when i started thinking through the libertarianism as a

, they boh live, not just in the land of political reality, but in the land where barack obama wins. he won the district in virginia where the congressman comes from. and they won the state of ohio. so they know that the american politics are diverse, ideologically, policy wise, generational. so they know, to be successful politicians have to operate within those confines, the people, ted cruz and others are self-selecting, self-seg gra gaiting and coming up with this success that only relies on people who think like they do. >> howard, i'm not going to quit on this point. i like immigrants, especially people who come here legally and play by the rules. he did that. his father's from cuba. he just got here from canada. and yet he gets to dictate to everybody on the north, everybody's a minority. the blacks who were here for 400 years, at least a lot of them. are they americans? how do you get to dictate this stuff to america to your convenience. it's awesome. it's an awesome arrogance to talk like this, we americans. >> you don't get to dictate it, chris. and i think it's up to people withi

it behind the scenes. . the holy sea has taken positions that influenced american policies in other ways. most recently when president obama seemed to go to war with syria, the pope had a day of prayer to stop that and guess what, we're not at war with syria. according to the magazine, the n.s.a. has been categorizing the vatican's communication into four different categories. i want to take a look at them. there's leadership intentions, what they call leadership intentions, foreign policy objectives, human rights and then threats of the financial system. i find the last one to the financial system. what threats to the financial system does the vatican pose? >> that's a bit of a head scratcher because it doesn't have a particularly large amount of economic clout. occasionally they make comments about policy suggestion for how to help the world economy and how to help the world develop particularly in the developing world but it doesn't wield a lot of financial power. it isn't that big financially. it does have an institute. now, there's the institute for the works of religion which is ki
